Patrice Evra hilariously took a swipe at Manchester City after Micah Richards called the Etihad a “fantastic” stadium ahead of Soccer Aid 2021.

Kem Cetinay scored a brace and Lee Mack found the back of the net as World XI beat the England team 3-0 on Friday evening.

The Soccer Aid clash raised a record-breaking £13,014,769 for the charity UNICEF.

Ahead of kick-off at the Etihad, Evra and Richards didn’t put their respective Manchester United and City allegiances aside.

Evra yelled “Come on, United!” at Richards as they walked out onto the Etihad pitch, which was met with laughter from the former City right-back.

Richards, who uploaded the exchange to his Instagram Story, started to chant “Citeh, Citeh” before the Sky Sports pundit was left in awe at “this fantastic stadium.”

However, United legend Evra interjected and told Richards: “Wait, wait, wait. Fantastic stadium, but you will never win the Champions League!”

Richards wrote in the caption for the clip: “[Patrice Evra] I’m saving this video for [Manchester City] [to] win it!!!”

United fans, unsurprisingly, couldn’t hold back their appreciation towards Evra after his brutal dig at City and their supporters.

“I honestly love Patrice more than my dad,” one Twitter user posted.

Someone else wrote: “These two need to do a Netflix series or something.”

While a third fan tweeted: “Give the man a statue already.”

And a fourth added: “Once a red, always a red. Legend. Love this guy’s positivity.”

City reached their first Champions League final last season and faced Chelsea at the Estadio do Dragao in Portugal.

However, Pep Guardiola’s men came up short on the night and suffered a 1-0 defeat to the Premier League club.

Speaking after the Champions League defeat, the City manager praised his players and vowed that the club would “come back one day again.”

Guardiola told BT Sport in May: “It's an exceptional season for us, is an honour to be here, today we are sad. We'll analyse an exceptional season for us.

“It was a tough game, we had almost the first clear chances, they missed one with [Timo] Werner and in the second half with [Christian] Pulisic.

“In the second half, we were brilliant, we were brave. We couldn't convert the goals because they are so strong. So fast on the counter-attack. We didn't allow them to make the process to play.

“The players were exceptional -- all of them. We'll come back one day again.”
